The inside of the E.C.’s door and both LCP door frames have been rubbed down and prepared for a repaint.

Testing of some spare Argus boards was carried out with mixed results, serviceable spares for the Argus are always a concern. Current backups of the LCP software were made without any issues.

The T86 waveguide desiccators have been refurbished which included new seals and a repaint. See accompanying photo. The requirement for new seals is a measure to prevent water ingress, a key objective of our restoration programme.
